Solid geometry, stereometry

Solid geometry is the name for the geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space.

Stereometry deals with the measurements of volumes of various solid figures (three-dimensional figures) including pyramids, prisms and other polyhedrons; cylinders; cones; truncated cones; and balls bounded by spheres.

  8. Water level
    bazen_11 How high is the water in the swimming pool with dimensions of 37m in length and 15m in width, if an inlet valve is opened for 10 hours flowing 12 liters of water per second?
  9. Pool
    bazen_10 The prism-shaped pool is 2 m deep with a bottom of the isosceles trapezoid with base dimensions of 10 m and 18 m and arm legs 7 m long and 5.7 m long. During the spring cleaning, the bottom and walls of the pool must be painted. How many m2 of paint should
  10. Cube cut
    cut_cube In the ABCDA'B'C'D'cube, it is guided by the edge of the CC' a plane witch dividing the cube into two perpendicular four-sided and triangular prisms, whose volumes are 3:2. Determine in which ratio the edge AB is divided by this plane.
  11. Collect rain water
    valec2_14 The garden water tank has a cylindrical shape with a diameter of 80 cm and a height of 12 dm. How many liters of water will fit into the tank?
  12. Pilot
    aircraft-02_12 How high is the airplane's pilot to see 0.001 of Earth's surface?
  13. Perimeter of base
    valec_16 The circumference of the base of the rotating cylinder is same as its height. What is the diameter and height of this cylinder with volume 1 liter?
